Three-year-old Meilun and Meihuan are struggling to follow Chinese, specially the Sichuan dialect as they can only understand English. They are gradually getting used to life back in China after their arrival early this month. However, they have not shed all their old habits; they still prefer American crackers to Chinese bread, and know English better than Chinese, state-run People's Daily reported.
It all started with a Zambian chimpanzee named Julie in 2010. Julie stuck a piece of grass into her ear, and left it there. And she would do it over and over again. But why? Actually, this "grass-in-ear-behavior" appears to serve no discernible function. But after Julie did it, other chimps in her group began to follow suit.

Meet Gray, Piper and Caleb... the four legged members of the Snowmass Ski Patrol handled by Nathan Garfield, Dan Berg and Susan "Mouse" Carollo. These avalanche rescue dogs always seem to be wearing a smile, whether they're putting up boundary ropes or training year round as search and rescue dogs.

In this video we have tried to show movement and the enormous chromatic beauty of corals, a kind of marine animals that despite being one of the oldest animals on our planet, are mostly unknown.
You will discover its stunning beauty, its spectacular colors and the mystery of his movements.
To capture these images it was necessary to apply the technique of time lapse as the slow movements of these animals are very difficult to see at a glance.
The use of macro lens gives a large enough vision to contemplate the huge variety of colorful species.

We have another touching story about a young boy from Australia and his best friend - a magpie. The bird's name is Penguin, and she was rescued as a baby by her owner, 10-year-old Noah Bloom. Cameron Bloom, Noah's mother, is a professional photographer who has been capturing the relationship as it blossoms.
The first large-scale study of ancient feline DNA has finally been completed, and the results reveal how our inscrutable friends were domesticated in the Near East and Egypt some 15,000 years ago, before spreading across the globe and into our hearts. Cats sailed with Vikings to conquer the world.

They're beautiful and intriguing, but these ferocious predators have sharp mandibles, near-360-degree vision and can fly backward.
A fascinating article about these fantastic predators.
At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Canada's Derek Drouin took the gold in the high jump, with a leap of 2.38 m (7ft 10in). It was a stunning jump, but it fell 7cm short of the world record of 2.45m (8ft), set by Cuba's Javier Sotomayor way back in 1993.
As ever with our athletic feats, there are plenty of wild animals that leap far higher, reaching dizzying heights in a single bound.
There are two ways you can measure the highest jumps. The first is the absolute height an animal reaches. However, that tends to favour the largest animals, so the second option is to consider how high an animal jumps relative to its own size.
